What type of poetry did Edgar Allan Poe write (haikus, free verses, limericks)?
Edgar Allan Poe primarily wrote narrative poems, poems which tell stories in metered verse. While Poe's work wasn't explicitly meant to be recited or sung, he referred to many of his narrative poems as "ballads" for their highly lyrical and dramatic quality.
"Annabel Lee," one of Poe's most famous works (of poetry or otherwise), demonstrates his general style and approach to poetry. The common characteristics of this and many of his other poems are: alternating yet imperfect rhyme schemes, traditional stanza structure, and considerable length. (These are certainly no haikus!)
